Casa Del Sol Tequila



Casa Del Sol is a luxury sipping Tequila, inspired by the magic of golden hour and the legend of the Aztec goddess of agave, Mayahuel.

Tequila is a romantic, ritual spirit steeped in tradition and mysticism. Legend has it that in order to protect herself and her lover, the God of Wind, from her spiteful grandmother, Mayahuel created an agave with long green spires that could defend them. Enraged by their defiance, her grandmother wielded a bolt of lightning and burnt the agave to the ground. What was left amongst the ashes was a single green spire, at the base of which was a piña filled with the sweet nectar of agave, completing Mayahuel's transformation into the Goddess of Tequila.
Grown in the Altos de Jalisco region of Mexico, the rich red clay soil and cool climate produce the best agave in the world. Cultivated using natural and sustainable practices that rely solely on rainwater and the rays of the sun, we hand-select the finest 7-year-old 100% Blue Weber Agave, ensuring the highest quality of every piña used to produce our precious spirit.
Our piñas are hand-cut masterfully by our jimadores, then halved and cooked for 8-10 hours in an autoclave that is heated using steam produced sustainably by burning the trimmings from our process. The piñas are removed from heat and crushed to extract the sugars from the agave, which transforms into alcohol, or mosto. We distill multiple times, first in stainless steel and then in copper stills to reduce harshness and remove any natural impurities. With the experience, knowledge, skill and intuition of generations, we carefully navigate the delicate balance between capturing the essential alcohols, and draining off the other components to achieve the absolute best in quality & flavor.
